The release debuted at #3 on the NZ Charts and #1 on the iTunes Singer / Songwriter charts. He was also a finalist in the prestigious APRA Silver Scrolls Awards 2014 with his song ‘Back!On!My!Feet’. He then went on to release his first ever limited edition 7” record ‘Just Want To Thank You’ courtesy of the Red Bull Music Academy.
